Psalm 100 states: 1 “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. 3 Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. 5 For the Lord is good, and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”
Psalm 100 reminds us of the faithfulness and the enduring love of God that is shared with us every day as our Creator. As Christ-followers, we should continually be filled with gratitude for what Jesus has done for us and through us. Our hearts should cry out in joyous praise throughout the day for the gift of salvation through the redemptive grace of God. Despite the difficulties that may come our way, we find joy in whose we are – God’s people, the sheep of His pasture; saved, loved and redeemed by Jesus Christ.
